This semester, the campus came alive as students and faculty worked hard to produce their best work during the celebration of arts and media. Here is a quick rundown of the best art pieces and productions this year. 

THE COLOR PINK

On March 22, THE COLOR PINK was an exquisite embark on femininity and childhood. Many mediums included photography, sculpture and painting. The student showcase commented on femininity and childhood. A standout piece was “Pink, blooming,” a 3D sculpture by freshman art major Emilia Davies. 

THE SEA WE MUST WADE 

Most notable on campus, “The Sea We Must Wade” exhibited heavy themes of the effect of police brutality and systemic racism in America. From a wall-sized graphite titled “Troubled Waters” by Shawn Michael Warren to a film on the subject playing on loop, The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery took on an air of importance and gravity for the month it displayed. Warren later visited campus to speak on the piece and its influences. 

EURYDICE 

Eurydice” was a crowd favorite with a touching and tragic storyline. Playing at the beginning of April, this two-hour show explored love and death. From the actors’ stunning performances, to the set design and scripting, this show was one for the books. 

INDICTUS AND UNDER REFURBISHMENT 

Directed by senior cinema and media arts major Samuel Moyle, “Indictus” has the potential to be a masterpiece. This sci-fi thriller inspired by works such as “Ex Machina” and the “Matrix” is not to be missed. The preface begins with a woman who is interrogated by an artificial intelligence that impersonates her closest relatives.

 Senior cinema and media arts major Griffin Douglass brought his writings to life as he directed the short film “Under Refurbishment.” Final production will be wrapped in May, as the film continues a lively and engaging online presence.
